The Vengeance Trilogy: "Sympathy for Mr Vengeance", "OldBoy", and "Lady Vengeance"

12/11/2018
More
Right now the streaming service Shudder has one of our favorite thematic trilogies of all time in its collection. Park Chan-Wook is a Korean filmmaker that everyone should be aware of, and the best introduction to him is this series. "Sympathy for Mr. Vengance" is the first one that was made, but not necessarily the first one that needs to be watched. "OldBoy" happens to be one of the best films of all time, and the place we would suggest beginning this saga. "Lady Vengeance" displays the...

"Border", "Cam", and "Creed 2": A New Release Episode

11/28/2018
More
This week we are giving you two new release episodes on top of The Wheel coming out on Friday. Jess and Andrew got to see one of the most unique films of the year. The Swedish film "Border" is one that we will never forget, and we hope the academy also remembers it come Oscar time. Jess and Andrew also enjoyed the new film from Blumhouse and Gunpowder and Sky collaboration "Cam." It's another film Netflix claims as an original but was just purchased by them at a festival. We highly...

"Beautiful Boy", "Bohemian Rhapsody", and "A Star is Born": A New Release Episode

11/26/2018
More
Alright, we are going to get this out of the way right at the top. This episode has taken us a little bit to figure out how to release. There is a film out there that many consider a "new classic," Jess and Andrew could not stand it. A Star is Born failed on every single level for them, and the podcast is not kind to it. Forgive us the honesty. There are many positive things on the episode as well, and we placed them ahead of Star. If you don't want to hear us bash your favorite movie of...

Brian De Palma's "Sisters"

11/20/2018
More
Going forward, Jess and Andrew are going to release "The Wheel" as a stand-alone episode. For those who don't know, "The Wheel" is a weekly assignment that we leave to chance. We spin a prize wheel that has 18 selections on it and are told what to watch. If you have suggestions for "The Wheel", don't hesitate to send them to Andrew@andrewwatchesmovies.com. We will be picking them from the audience periodically. This week's episode is Brian De Palma's "Sisters". Currently, this is streaming...

The Haunting of Hill House: Episodes 6-10

11/20/2018

Jess and Andrew are back! On today's episode, they continue with the Netflix saga "The Haunting of Hill House". This episode contains spoilers, so we suggest viewing first. If you don't give a fuck about a spoiler, jump right in.

The Haunting of Hill House: Episodes 1-5

10/31/2018
More
Join Jess and Andrew as they journey through The Haunting of Hill House with the Crain family. Netflix original material isn't always great, but they hit the mark with this show. Mike Flanagan has been trying to make a "haunted drama" for much of his career, and he gets the closest to perfecting that twist on the horror genre in this piece. The first five episodes have a different tone than the last five, so this is a perfect way to break it up. We will be back next week with the rest of the...

31 Films of Halloween: "Suspiria" 1977 Original and 2018 Remake

10/31/2018
More
Happy Halloween everyone! On the last day of our 31 Films of Halloween journey, we bring you two versions of one of our favorite films of all time. Dario Argento's 1977 Suspiria was given a brilliant 4K restoration last year, and we got the chance to see it in the theater again. The film was also remade this year by Luca Guadaguino who made last year's Call Me By Your Name. It's hard to pin down our exact feelings on this one, but we know that it's one that deserves to exist and even get a...

31 Films of Halloween: "It Follows" and "The Witch in the Window"

10/30/2018
More
Join Jess and Andrew for Day 30 of their 31 Films of Halloween journey. Today we tackle a film that is very close to both of us. One of our first dates was to see "It Follows", so that will always be an unforgettable film for us. It's also one that is damn good and is streaming on Netflix. We also watched the new Shudder Original "The Witch in the Window". We are adding it to our Halloween list, so you know this one is good.

Channel Zero: Butchers Block

10/29/2018
More
We have a bonus episode for you today. Shudder has been upping their content game this month, and just added the third season of Channel Zero. Butchers Block may not be quite on par with the other installments of the series, but it's better than 99% of the episodic television I see. On this podcast, we cover the entire season. Hope you all enjoy!

31 Films of Halloween: "The Void"

10/29/2018
More
Join Jess and Andrew for Day 29 of our 31 Films of Halloween journey. On today's episode, we take a step into The Void on Netflix. If you're a fan of Hellraiser dimensions, this is the film for you. It's Andrew's birthday today, so you know this pick is a special one. A time comes in every series where it is better to abandon than trudge on. The time to jump ship from Masters of Horror is now. Andrew will let you know why in this episode.

31 Films of Halloween: Revenge of the Anthology "Trick-r-Treat", "All Hallows Eve", and "Terrifier"

10/28/2018
More
For Day 28 of their 31 Films of Halloween Journey, Jess and Andrew enjoy a night of Halloween hijinx with Sam in the Trick r' Treat universe. This anthology set the bar for every other modern anthology and is screaming for a sequel of its own. A darker, lower budget anthology is also explored. In All Hallows Eve, an absolutely terrifying clown named Art was introduced. This isn't at the same level of storytelling as Trick r' Treat, but it contains some horrifying frights. This past year,...

31 Films of Halloween: "The Burbs" and "Masters of Horror: The Black Cat"

10/27/2018
More
Halloween isn't always about scaring the shit out of ourselves with films. Sometimes a comedy set during the season can be just as festive as a horror film. For Day 27, we are watching a great comedy horror film from Joe Dante, The Burbs. Tom Hanks may not be my favorite actor in the world, but he's playing a part he was born for in this film. Our Masters of Horror journey continues with the second contribution from Stewart Gordon. A tale about Edgar Allen Poe is just what the series needs...

31 Films of Halloween: "Summer of '84" and "Masters of Horror: We All Scream for Ice Cream"

10/26/2018
More
A couple of months ago, one of our favorite films of the year was given a small theatrical release. We promised to update everyone when Summer of '84 was added to a streaming platform. That day has arrived, and we are thankful to Shudder for adding it before Halloween. Summer is the perfect selection for Day 26 of our 31 Films of Halloween journey. Most episodes of Masters of Horror are great, but not everything is perfect. I'm not going to harp too much on We All Scream for Ice Cream, but...

Beware the Moors and stick to the road for Day 24 of our 31 Films of Halloween Journey. An American Werewolf in London is one of the greatest horror films of all time, and perfect for tonight's Full Moon. Andrew also continues with Masters of Horror with Valerie on the Stairs.

31 Films of Halloween: "Train to Busan" and "Masters of Horror: The Screwfly Solution"

10/23/2018
More
For Day 23 of our 31 Films of Halloween journey, Jess and Andrew catch up on a beloved zombie film that has been a blind spot until now. Train to Busan has been talked about at length since its release and is streaming on Netflix now. Check it out with us before hits the American remake chopping block. Jess also joins Andrew for today's discussion on Master's of Horror. Joe Dante's chapter The Screwfly Experiment was a welcome surprise. It now holds the crown as our favorite of the series.

31 Films of Halloween: "Return of the Living Dead" and "Channel Zero: No End House"

Join Jess and Andrew on their 31 Films of Halloween journey. Today, we are revisiting an old favorite. If you haven't seen Return of the Living Dead before, there is no time like the present to change that. It's streaming on Amazon now and is one of the best zombie films of all time. Pop it on, and Let's Party! Andrew also takes a journey to the No End House from Channel Zero. The season may not live up to Candle Cove but it has classic mythology in its own right. This series from...

31 Films of Halloween: Double Anthology with "Creepshow" and "Southbound"

10/21/2018
More
On today's episode, we are experimenting with a little bit of Double Anthology. We will be watching and reacting to ten different short horror films today contained in 2 anthology films, perfect for a Sunday double feature. 1982's Creepshow is considered the benchmark for Anthology horror films. Many have come after it, but only a few measures up. This collaboration between Stephen King and George Romero is a must-see for every Halloween season. A lesser-known anthology film that we wish...

31 Films of Halloween: "They Live" and "Masters of Horror: The Screwfly Solution

10/20/2018
More
Day 20 of our 31 Film journey brings us to one of our favorites of all time. John Carpenter's They Live is unfortunately relevant and horrific today, but that's just because it was such a good predictor of things to come. We haven't found any sort of glasses that show us who is good and who is bad, but we do still govern our lives through self-interest. The speeches and sentiments in this film are as fresh, and the action is pretty amazing. The fight between Kieth David and Rowdy Roddy Piper...

31 Films of Halloween: The Podcast He Came Home

10/19/2018
More
On today's episode, Jess and Andrew have the pleasure of discussing Halloween (1978) and Halloween (2018). We saw both in the theaters on back to back nights and had vastly different experiences at both. Be warned, the start of the podcast is a discussion/rant about how certain audiences disrespect older films in the theater. Not everything is Rocky Horror Picture Show. It's a shame because the theater we went to is known for distraction-free viewing. You win some; you lose some. The...
